Hela Brandes was a human female who served in the Naboo Royal Advisory Council as Music Advisor under Queen Padmé Amidala. In 32 BBY, Brandes was present when Senator Palpatine contacted the Council only to lose communication. Governor Sio Bibble thought that there would be an invasion by the Trade Federation from Naboo. Amidala refused to take any action that would lead the planet to war. The invasion did happen and the rest of the Naboo was captured. But later, the queen freed her home planet and all of Naboo celebrated. She wore a draped purple dress.
